      Well, the main move is on river. I get called on turn, while OOP. CO could have had QJs that completed his straight, but then why didn't he raise? I expected him to play set differently, raising earlier. I went for a value-block bet on river, thinking that at most of the cases I am still ahead.
      P.S. My block bets might become an exploitable leak soon. :f_grin: :f_grin:

      Hello faronel,

      Not really, I doubt that people are exploiting on those stakes. Nice hand! Would be tough to Call him down on the river while QJ also completed and if he bets big would mainly depend on the opponent if he is capable of bluffing.

      Best Regards.
